    With cavaliers it would probably be the smallest size. Basically they should be able to stand up, lie down and turn around fully but even a full grown cavalier should be ok in the smallest crate.

    Yes I think that looks about the right size for a Cav. I don't like crates that are very small especially if the dog is going to be in them for some time.

    My Yorkie has a 30" crate in the house and its just the right size for her, she also has a smaller one for the car.

    Pippa has a 30" crate too and she's very happy in it. It should be fine for her too when she's fully grown and it's giving me peace of mind that she's not getting into too much mischief!

    Harvey fits in it fine - and he can turn around with no problems - and he is a bit overweight! :eek:

    I got a 21" crate for £10 in B&Q and I think it'll only last a few months but it'll do for starting the crate training. I don't want to get a bigger one until I know for sure what size to get as I want one for in the house and a lightweight crate for dog shows to save my back! Cheeko is in a 30" crate and it is a bit big but he likes his space.
